When Dr. Max Pekarev of MP Plastic Surgery meets with prospective breast lift patients, one of the most frequently asked questions he hears is regarding breastfeeding. Many women come in for initial breast lift consultations that are not done growing their family through childbirth. However, the appearance of their breasts is too often so discouraging that they want to go ahead and have a breast lift anyway.
Obviously, there is some concern about the longevity of breast lift results if a woman chooses to breastfeed after her procedure, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that your results are doomed. How you view yourself, and the confidence that you have in your body is very important to your mental health, which is why you should come in for a one-on-one appointment with Dr. Max Pekarev to find out what you can expect from a breast lift and how breastfeeding might affect your results.
A Breast Lift Is Not Breast Augmentation
Before we jump into the subject of breastfeeding after a breast lift, it’s important that women understand exactly what a breast lift is and what it can provide.
Breast sagging, medically known as breast ptosis, happens as a result of pregnancy, age, genetics, and weight fluctuations, and can only be helped through a breast lift. A breast lift is performed to raise the position of a woman’s breasts back to their natural spot on the chest.
A breast lift will give women a perkier look but will not increase the size of a woman’s breasts. It is important to understand that a breast lift and breast augmentation are two separate procedures. A breast lift lifts the breasts, and a breast augmentation adds volume and shape to the breasts. If you desire both lift and volume, Dr. Max Pekarev can combine the two procedures into one surgical event.
How Could Breastfeeding Affect the Results of My Breast Lift?
Pregnancy affects the entire body. Because of this, the breasts will enlarge during pregnancy and even more so during breastfeeding. Breastfeeding may not completely negate the results of your breast lift, but you will notice some type of change in your results after you have stopped breastfeeding, and your milk production has stopped.
It will be impossible to know to what degree you could experience change. This is why Dr. Max Pekarev recommends women be sure they’re done having children before choosing breast lift surgery. It may be hard to wait, but doing so will ensure you’re able to enjoy your breast lift results for a longer period of time.
